Sleepy Hollow fans have breathed a sigh of relief when Fox had officially announced that there will be a Sleepy Hollow Season 3. Viewers should also expect an entirely different show now that Glades creator Clifton Campbell has taken the lead.
Ichabod Crane can now put aside family drama now that his wife Katrina has been killed off from the series. Perhaps he can now focus on building a more meaningful relationship with Lieutenant Abbie Mills? But could Ichabod be feeling guilty over his wife and son’s deaths?
“I’d like to see him put on a really big grin, have a big smile on his face and carry on, stiff upper lip, keep your chin up, pip pip British, et cetera while underneath, my god, he killed his entire family!,” said actor Tom Mison, who plays Ichabod in the show.
Fans were worried that there won’t be a Sleepy Hollow Season 3 when it was announced that showrunner Mark Goffman had left the show due to declining ratings. The series fared very well in the ratings during its inital run in the first season, but ratings quickly declined during the second season with many of its viewers complaining that the show took a very “boring turn.”
There was a lot of speculation that the show would be cancelled once the second season had ended. Even Mison had admitted that the show needed to have a “total reboot” in order for the show to be renewed for another season. Now that Ichabod no longer has any family to turn to, is there any chance that he would “turn evil”?
“I don’t think he’s the kind to do that, actually. I don’t think he would want anyone to see how much he’s hurting. He would want to get on with it. They made a choice. Henry and Katrina made their decision to turn dark. Abbie and Ichabod made their decision to fight against it, and that’s the decision and we’re going to go with, and I’m going to be strong and we’ve got other battles to fight.” Mison said.
The show is expected to have an entirely different look now that Campbell has taken the lead. There will certainly be a new and fresh perspective on things once Sleepy Hollow Season 3 premieres.
“‘Sleepy Hollow’ is truly inventive television,” said Fox president David Madden “The talented producers – led by Alex, Bob, Len and Heather – along with the brilliant cast, anchored by Nicole and Tom, have created a fantastic world that brings ‘history’ to life with compelling and vibrant storytelling.”
